FoxNews bails on Hastert.

Republican House Speaker Dennis Hastert, who gave a press conference today, claiming to take "responsibility" for letting a 52-year-old prey on congressional pages despite repeated warnings about his behavior.

"The buck stops here", said Hastert... before saying that he did nothing wrong, and won't step down from his position.

Well, now it appears that FoxNews and other Republicans are getting ready to sell him down the river, as their internal polls show that Hastert's position as speaker could cost them the upcoming elections, causing a loss of between twenty and fifty seats in the House!

So, I just wanted to make it clear that under the circumstances, I completely support Hastert. I hope he stays around until after the upcoming election, myself.
